A descriptive study to find out the knowledge and practices of staff nurses regarding administration of iv therapy in Ideas hospital of Gwalior, (M.P.). Objectives of the Study: “To find out the knowledge of staff nurses regarding administration of IV therapy”, “To assess the practice of staff nurses regarding administration of IV therapy”, “To know the correlation between knowledge and practice of staff nurses regarding administration of IV therapy”, “To know the association between knowledge of staff nurses regarding administration of IV therapy according to the demographic variables”. Methodology: A non-experimental research approach was used in this study to evaluate the subject's knowledge and practice. Staff nurses at IDEAS Hospital, Gwalior, make up the population. Using a deliberate sampling method, the samples were drawn. The demographic factors included age, gender, professional qualification, total clinical experience, the availability of essential IV treatment equipment, any in service training program attended, and the frequency of IV therapy administration per day in this research. Data was gathered via the use of a questionnaire and an observational checklist that had been specifically designed for the purpose. Experts have confirmed its validity. Employing Karl Pearson's (correlation coefficient) method, it was determined that the tool (r=0.5281) was dependable. Results: After executing a pilot research, the full study was carried out. Researchers found that, on average, staff nurses knew (14.16%) and had a mean practice score of of the following: (38.84 percent). There was a strong correlation between the demographic variables of gender and the frequency of IV therapy administration per day, but none of the Age, professional qualification, total clinical experience, equipment on the ward, and participation in any in-service education programs were all crucial demographic factors to take into consideration.

Tube feeding is most essential when a patient feels unable to chew or swallow, in different medical cases such as facial trauma or oral surgery. Thus, we conducted a study to evaluate the effectiveness of structured teaching program regarding knowledge on tube feeding in old age people among caregivers at selected old age home, Bangalore. A quasi experimental one group pre-test and post-test design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of Structure Teaching Program (STP) on tube feeding in old age people among caregivers at selected old age homes, Bangalore.Based on the geographical proximity, feasibility and familiarity with the setting, the investigator selected Karunaamrutha Nava Chaithnya, old age home, Bangalore. The aspect wise mean pre-test and post-test knowledge scores on tube feeding in old age people among caregivers. With regard to knowledge on general information of tube feeding in old age people, the mean scores in pre-test and post test were 8.14±2.86 and 13.26±2.74 respectively, obtained‘t’ value was 7.64. In area of problems of tube feeding, mean scores in pre-test was 2.69±2.31 and in post-test was 8.83±1.17 and obtained ‘t’ value was 16.38. In relation to prevention of complications of tube feeding, the mean scores in pre-test was 5.91±2.09 and in post-test was 9.79±1.21 and obtained ‘t’ value was 9.61. The overall ‘t’ value was 21.64 which was above the table value 2.6 at P≤0.05 level of significance. The findings of the study suggests that the STP is the best way for the caregivers regarding tube feeding among old age population and also the STP developed by the researcher is an effective materials and should be used as a blue print for further investigations to develop more effective instructional materials.
